Florida’s Ricky Pearsall delivers possible catch of the year
Florida wide receiver Ricky Pearsall delivered a catch of the year candidate during the Gators’ game against Charlotte on Saturday.
Florida was leading 7-0 in the first quarter and had the ball near midfield. Graham Mertz threw a 1st-and-10 pass to Pearsall near the 30-yard line. The senior receiver skied for the ball and made a sick one-handed catch in traffic.

A transfer from Arizona State, Pearsall is off to a strong start this season. The second-year Gator entered Saturday with 20 catches for 258 yards and a touchdown. He’s adding to his total in a big way and is also on the highlight reel now thanks to that spectacular catch.
